  • *In most cases Easy Payment options will cost more than if you paid in full and upfront due to increased costs of processing payments over a longer period of time. 
  • Please note that when you opt for this arrangement you are entering a legally binding contract for which you will be personally liable.
  • Each monthly payment must be paid on the same day each month (date of enrolment).
  • A late or non payment invalidates this arrangement and to continue with the course the outstanding balance must be paid within two weeks of missed date. Payments can be made by Debit / Credit cards, Standing Order, Bank draft or Postal orders.
  • If you decide to cancel your enrolment you can do so if you confirm this in writing to the College within 7 days of your enrolment date. You will, however, lose the value of your first payment. If you decide to cancel after 7 days you may do so but you will be legally bound to pay the full outstanding balance on the course fees and failure to do so within 30 days will result in court proceedings being instigated against you with the likelihood of you being responsible for additional costs.
  • Attendance or Face-to-Face Learning courses are excluded.
